Pinstripes as the name suggests, is a bowling alley and a bocce court. It also has a great restaurant with an extensive menu. Almost all the dishes I have had were well prepared and served beautifully. Before or after eating, you have the choice either bowling or playing bocce. It is a fun place to go to, but you must...

Each time I"m here, I like it less. The service, food, and drinks are very good and that's why I gave a four-star rating. I can't give a higher score, because the noise level is quite irritating. And, given the concept and layout, I will never have a quiet, relaxing meal here. When the nice weather returns, perhaps we will... More

I went for a friend's birthday. The food was average and the bowling seemed expensive to me. In their defense I was invited to a party so expected not to pay at all and was surprised by how much it was. This is not the venues fault.

Our group had our annual office holiday party here. We started off with team bowling, munchies, drinks, on to dinner upstairs, and wrapped up the evening with Bocce ball and deserts. Food excellent, staff attentive, and everyone had a great time. The live music off the main bar was a nice bonus, Christmas decorations spot on. There is a Sheraton... More

We have eaten here several times before and the food has been very good. It can be crowded, particularly when a group reserves the bocce ball area, as happened on our last visit. But, we were accommodated quite nicely. My wife had a simple spaghetti and meatballs, which was good, though not as good as our homemade. I had the... More

In the life is stranger than fiction department, my first venture to Pinstripes was to attend a 40th high school reunion and watch the Cubs succeed in making it to the World series for the first time since 1945. The service, food and surroundings of Pinstripes sure matched the evening. I had pizza, Angus burgers, chicken skewers and fried mac... More

Love this restaurant during warm weather outdoors. The kids love it, the food is fairly light and well priced. We also eat at the lanes when the kids play bowling. It's convenient and enjoyable.

I was greeted nicely upon arrival - very friendly & welcoming. The atmosphere is fun! Requested to be seated outside. It's really nice! (Just wish the chairs were a bit more comfortable.)
